Re: Circle of Titles 2021

Sorry to hear about your dog.

I managed to get all of the music for mine recorded yesterday, so hopefully I can figure out the words before the new deadline.

Re: Circle of Titles 2021

I've got nothing yet. I'm finishing my current job today and starting a new one next week and at present I am stressing out too much about everything to be creative. Hopefully I can get something written this weekend to take my mind off it all.

Re: sonofgearfight #1: "These are the Jokes"

Vom Vorton awkward phrasing on "not sure how much comfort in that I'm supposed to take", a lyrical inversion like "down the stairs he did fall" that forces the rhyme. Thanks for the detailed reviews! Slightly confused about this part though, I wouldn't consider this line to be an inversion. What wo...

Mine's written, hoping to record it this weekend depending on whether 2nd vaccine knocks me out or not.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

The Lowest Bitter - that bassline is ridiculously catchy. Perhaps... too catchy? No, that isn't a thing. This is a song I liked on first listen and enjoy more each time I hear it, so pleased to see it win the round! Great lyrics and I love the effect when the synthy chorus drops back out to the bas...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

I liked your song a lot Nick! It would be nice to hear from a judge or two, I know reviews are a lot of work but it's always hugely appreciated when people put the effort in. I was not surprised to be eliminated this week but I enjoyed making my strange song, it was very much out of my comfort zone....

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

Here you go, some quickly written reviews, after three listens (to the competition songs) or two for the shadows (or first listen for Governing Dynamics as it wasn't posted yet when I listened before). Not sure there's much helpful in here but we all like reviews, right? Reviews! Balance Lost - love...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

Vudget Vears : Also is there a reason the vocals (and drums) were mixed to sound like they're in the next room? I actually made the massive effort to check for liner notes to see if there was a reason for this but I was left empty-handed. It feels like the guitar is at the front and everything else...

I'll properly review another round at some point, but for now I'll just throw a big +1 on pretty much everything Pete said, especially re: that Grumpy Mike / Cybronica song being an incredible amount of fun and a great take on the title / challenge.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

I believe the judges will be requiring us to build a Neolithic circular enclosure for this round. I have already begun work on mine - the distinctive ambience it creates should propel me to an easy victory. Wait, so we're not writing songs about a circular piece of steel, as part of an armour harne...

I have a followup question - is the discord meant for judges / administrative folks or is it a server that's open to anyone?
It's open to all, this link might get you there, if I understand what I'm doing?
